In an effort to reach beyond the young men and women of SEC, Lisa and Mitchell Fuerst founded The Fuerst Family Foundation for the following three reasons:
After witnessing first-hand how SEC has transformed the lives of tens of thousands of students, Mitchell and Lisa are passionate about providing opportunities to as many people as possible. And what makes this Foundation so unique is that they have both been deeply inspired by the Colleges they lead. Mitchell grew up with a mother who wanted nothing more than to empower those whom society had pushed aside. Quite naturally, this became his mission as well, a belief ingrained in him since early childhood. Empathy was as much a sibling as his sisters and brothers.
Lisa had been one of the pushed aside. As a young woman, she yearned for more from life, but until she began studying at North-West College, she wasn’t sure how her dream could ever come true. Together, they are proof that dreams do come true. And they want nothing more than to share this reality with the world beyond Success Education Colleges.
